Crystal Thai Restaurant
Ranked #42 of 135 Restaurants in Owings Mills
Cuisines: Thai
Restaurant details
Reviewed 12 December 2011

Crystal Thai is located in the rear of a strip shopping center in Owings Mills, MD. The restaurant is unassuming from the outside, and continues to be unassuming inside. On the multiple times we have been there, there have only been 2 waitstaff working. Though the restaurant is rarely full, on the occasional time it is busy, service can be slow.

Even with those observations, the food is fabulous! Our orders have always been cooked to perfection, be it a protein dish, noodles or curry. Sauces are fragrant and pungent, and those that are supposed to be spicy are hot! Their Pad Thai noodles are among the best I have had outside of Thailand. For vegetarians, most dishes on the menu are available with tofu, in addition to chicken or shrimp. I have not tried any of the desserts here, but they include typical westernized asian favorites such as fried ice cream. Prices are incredibly low considering the quality of the dishes.

FYI - Crystal Thai is BYOB.

I have been to this Thai restaurant 3 times and everytime I always order a new dish to try. They serve really tasty Thai cuisine.Do not forget to try their Thai iced tea.

We ordered the food carry out. When we sat down to eat, the food looked rather unappetizing. Kind of like colorless food in colorless broth with some green pieces of parsley thrown in. Besides the look, the food was close to awful. Everything we had ordered tasted the same, and the food was very watery. Way too expensive for the taste, which again, wasn't very good. I would find another place for dinner.

We recently tried Crystal Thai after getting a coupon for it in the mail. It was a disappointing experience. The service was painfully slow as there was only one waitress working. The food was okay but nothing special. The dining room is laid out very awkwardly.
